    I Remember You

    Haven’t I seen you before?
    you look so familiar I
    remember you’re beautiful
    smile although I never
    really saw it much in those
    days

    I know you have to be the
    little girl that always played by
    yourself most of the time, you
    had friends but you seemed to
    be a loner

    I remember watching you cry
    a lot sitting in the old oak
    tree swinging your little tiny
    legs off the branch I was always
    afraid you would fall

    I know you! seen you so many times
    before “Hey” I know now!
    you’re the little precious girl
    that was abused by her stepfather
    for so many years, heard you being
    yelled at and smacked around

    I remember you would go to
    school with your legs all
    bandaged up and you were always
    looking down at the ground
    I remember you!

    “Well I must say” you sure have
    turned out to be a beautiful lady
    got your head up high dressed sharp
    as a tack designer clothes too!

    See you still got that killer smile and
    you wear it well, Outspoken and
    free spirited, must have been hell
    getting here Huh? But I am sure
    glad you made it, you didn’t give up
    and you didn’t quit

    Yeah I remember I lived cross the street
    from you back in the day I was only
    two years older than you and I felt sorry
    for you my life was nothing like yours
    but I always wondered about you off
    and on through out my own life


    I see life does have a way of
    turning the tables I guess what they
    say is really true, what goes around
    comes around and those who were last
    shall be first.
